Introducing Out Of Office Alert Zimlet

This Classic UI Zimlets displays an alert as soon as you enter an email address in to/cc/bcc of someone with an active out of office reply. Avoid putting time in writing an email just to be greeted with an out-of-office message after sending an email.



mkdir /opt/zimbra/lib/ext/outofofficealert
wget -O /opt/zimbra/lib/ext/outofofficealert/outofofficebanner.jar
sudo su - zimbra
wget -O /tmp/
zmzimletctl deploy /tmp/
zmmailboxdctl restart

    Good idea!

    In this release: 8.8.15_GA_3953.RHEL8_64_20200629025823 RHEL8_64 FOSS edition, Patch 8.8.15_P40,
    the following problem occurs:
    An error occurred while initializing the zimlet “com_zimbra_outofoffice_alert”. Please notify administrator.
    TypeError: this.handlerObject._init is not a function

      I have validated the Zimlet and it works as intended, make sure to flush your browser cache and restart Zimbra mailbox using zmmailboxdctl restart.
